TCP/IP’s z/OS Encryption Readiness Technology (zERT) feature provides a single source of data to determine which traffic to and from your site is cryptographically protected by protocols like TLS, SSH, and IPSec, and which is not protected.

This video covers:

  • What the new IBM zERT feature is
  • What data is (and isn’t) collected by zERT
  • The value of zERT data for network security administrators
  • And a demonstration of navigating zERT data using an interactive, web-based solution
